    Hi Hillbennerdeluxe,

     

    When charging your Tactacam you will only get one red light at the end of the battery indicator, once it is fully charged the red light will go off. You then can turn it on and see all the battery indicator lights will be green. We recommend standing the Tactacam straight up and down to get the best charge. 

    If need further assistance please email us at support@tactacam.com or call us at 844-482-2822 we are open Monday through Friday from 9am to 5pm CST. 

    Have a great day.

    Thank You

    Mine is doing the same thing. Will not charge, will not turn on. I plug it in and it will turn on, I plug it in with no battery and it will turn on. As soon as I unplug it, nothing.
    Very frustrated, second one I've had to do the same thing

    Same problem with my batteries. Have two. About 6 months old. The “solutions” here don’t work. The solid red charging light comes on when the battery is inserted, and then stays on forever. Well, for 3-4 days anyway. Same with the separate duel-battery charger.

    I bought an extra battery when I purchased my 5.0 but the extra battery will not charge in the camera. Red light just blinks sometimes when I first put the battery in but on blinks 1 time. Tryed to pull it in and out but never changes. I just opened it for the hunting season and does not work right out of package.

    Had the same exact issue 8 months ago. Tried all the suggestions but no luck. Tried four different batteries and two chargers ( in-camera and separate duel charger). The separate charger did fully charge the batteries but when they were put in the camera, same results. Just the red light and no power. Ended up sending the camera in for repairs. Came back working fine and has ever since.
